Assassin's Creed 2 - check
Mass Effect 2 - check
Final Fantasy XIII - check

Suddenly, I'm kinda lost as to what game I want to buy/play next. I'm a little burnt on RPGs right now, so I think I'd love a good adventure game. I had been insanely looking forward to Fragile Dreams, but I've been hearing nothing but negative press about that title. I'd been looking into Heavy Rain, but silly me... I forgot to look at what console it was for (PS3), so I'm outta luck there. End of Eternity looks like a fun enough RPG, but I'll save that for some time I want to play an RPG (probably pretty soon). Alan Wake is coming, I'm psyched... but it's not here yet.

So I'm kinda stuck right now. Should I just download Cave Story and sit tight until Alan Wake hits next month, or is there something that I really should check out? Obviously, we're not in a game draught, but I'm at the end of my personal cue and haven't poked my head out long enough to see what I should be looking at.

If you play Cave Story, just play the freeware PC version. The wii version has bugs and doesn't really work right. Also it costs money.

You could also go to gog.com and buy outcast which is pretty damn good.

If you have a decent computer Left 4 Dead 2 is on sale on Steam for $20 until the end of the day today I think. Killing zombies is always a good time. Really all I know you have is a 360 so that kind of limits any recommendation one could give. As previously mentioned GoG has a billion games for an awesome price, I'd say go grab Under a Killing Moon as it is an wicked cheesey fun FMV/3D point and click adventure game.

Just buy Deadly Premonition for the 360, it's $20, it's retarded and it lasts a decent amount of time.

When you say adventure, are you looking into point-and-click style adventure games or something more action oriented?  As far as the former is concerned, Machinarium (http://www.machinarium.net) has been getting a lot of good press.  It's downloadable for Windows, Mac, and Linux and you can try out a demo.  I think the visual design is pretty neat.  It's about 20 bucks I think. 

For something more action-oriented, Emberwind is fun.  It's a Ghouls 'n Ghosts type game available for both PC or Mac.  I've played this one and I think it's loads of fun.  http://timetrap.se/emberwind/  I think it's worth the 10 bucks or so, but you can always play the demo and see for yourself.

Thank you, I might actually play this once I'm done with Atelier Iris 2

Gotta say, I've always preffered playing on tv consoles. My mac is pretty much a work horse, I've never done any gaming on it, and I'm not particularly keen on starting.

Splinter Cell Conviction

Actually thought long and hard about that, I've always loved MGS, so I think I'll try that out sometime.

Problem solved though. I picked up a copy of Prince of Persia for 360. I love Assassin's Creed, which this has often been compared to, so I'll give it a go. It was cheep because it's older. So far, I'm enjoying it.
